Okay, so I’ve seen three out of four of the film adaptations for A Wrinkle in Time, Ready Player One and Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda (Love, Simon). Here are my spoiler-free thoughts: A Wrinkle In Time While I appreciated the diverse cast (always a plus), the beautiful imagery and amazing music, there was something about the film that left me wanting. One of the biggest disappointments was Charles Wallace. He was my favorite character in the book, but I just felt like he was a brat in the film. While I didn’t feel like the film was a … Continue reading BuzzFeed Book Challenge – How Were the Movies??

Years ago, I read Stephen King’s book It and it scared the living bejeezus out of me. To this day, I cannot walk past sewer drains without looking in them first to make sure Pennywise the Clown isn’t there waiting to pull me under.
